Here is a unique project for your scroll saw. This small box has a recess that is about 1/4" deep. You can place small objects in the cavity and fill it with Clear Casting Resin. Coins, stamps, concert tickets, flowers anything you want to preserve and enjoy.
The box is a typical scroll saw box. The addition of the extra piece on top is where it becomes unique. You can make it 1/4" to 1/2" deep depending on the size of your object.
Important note, you need to set your scroll saw table to about 3 to 4 degrees when you cut the top frame. I Learned the hard way that the resin will warp slightly as it dries. If you under cut it will keep the resin from lifting.
To get the best result follow the directions that come with the resin. Most objects look best if you pour some resin in the cavity then let it dry for about 30 minutes. Then insert the object and finish filling the cavity with resin. This makes your object look like it's floating.
After you pour the resin pour the left over in a container. Use this extra resin to check for dryness. If you touch your piece too early you will leave a finger print. It took about 3 days before my piece complete cured with no tackyness.
Make sure you don't practice the casting process with anything valuable. If things go wrong it is very difficult to get the object out of the resin.
